Can anyone tell me how they went about doing menu card for the reception dinner? Since we had to preselect the main course for each guest what did you so the waiters knew who was getting what? If anyone has pictures of what their looked like, that would be greatly appreciated

PZL & LOU --> Thanks so much!! I promise to get cracking on the planning thread & review ASAP!!

 

PHSEXXY--> Originally, we were going to do this style of menu. We were told in addition to providing the total # of menu selections prior to the event date, you'll also need the place settings to have some type of distinction to show the wait staff who gets what. What I've seen many brides do, and is probably the easiest way, is to create seating cards with a symbol of some sort for each menu selection. So, one entrée would have a seashell on it, another would have a starfish, etc. So all you'd have to provide to waitstaff is a key of what each symbol represents. Hope this helps!

We did our TTD the day after the wedding. Sam picked us up at Azul and drove us to Puerto Moreles beach, which is about 15 min away. We did the TTD in the evening and we had to be in the lobby the next morning at 4:30 to catch our transfer to the airport! I was nervous about the dress drying in time but it worked out!

As soon as we got back to the room, I rinsed my dress in the shower and then put it on the patio to dry. At about midnight I decided to go ahead and pack it up and it was surprisingly mostly dry. I put it in the garnet bag and then rolled it up and put it in a carry on bag by itself. We flew out of ATL but live in CLT so 2 flights and a 4 hour drive later, I took it out o the bag at about 8:00 that evening. I put it on my porch to finish drying and it's totally fine!

I will have it cleaned professionally and then decide to keep it or turn it into a short dress to wear on our anniversary.

Overall, I feel like "trashing" it didn't actually ruin it at all. :)

 

How did you handle him being an outside vendor? I booked him and paid for a room so I wouldnt have to pay the vendor fee. He is coming with an assistant. I asked my wedding coordinator if I have to book both him and his assistant in the room and was told no. So did you just pay the 800 vendor fee or book a room. If you booked a room how did that go?

Hi Ladies,

 

For those that have already had their wedding at Azul, how did you handle tipping for the staff for the wedding events, DJ, spa services (hair and make-up), other?

 

Thanks!

I'm doing the BBQ Deluxe for the reception. It's a buffet and people will serve themselves. I hadn't thought about doing menu cards although that would be a nice touch to the table decorations. Ummm! Decisions, decisions!!
